Mad Catz revealed at E3 2013 that it will be entering the console market with its own Android-based system. The company that has always focused on peripherals has stated that with the M.O.J.O., they will offer the most powerful Droid OS gaming system on the planet.
Confirmed specifications for M.O.J.O. include an NVIDIA® Tegra®4 T40S 1.8GHz Processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, HDMI out capabilities with full 1080p resolution, Bluetooth, microSD™ Flash Slot with support for SDXC™ Cards up to 128GB, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and the Android 4.2.2 operating system.
Unlike other Droid-based gaming systems, you will be able to import games you have purchased previously on the Google Play store, so long as they are linked to the account.
The M.O.J.O. Micro Console is available for pre-order now as quantities are limited. The MSRP has been revealed at $249.99. The small console will be released on December 10, 2013.
“The M.O.J.O. Micro-Console for Android has attracted strong interest due to its high-performance hardware, open software platform and the ecosystem of accessories,” said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. “M.O.J.O. is the center piece of our GameSmart™ mobile initiative and brings core gaming experiences to the mobile platform.”
